I went orienteering last year acuttaly. I would have been fun except we ran out of water and are group leader was pushing us to get all the beacons.... its was only 100 going up hill with loads of insects...and no water...good times good times.

"If there is any primarch who should have never been found, its Lorgar. Why? Two words. Hours Hersey"
"It was a 1......why was it a 1!"
Yes, I do play orks, yes, I do have quite a few boys on the table, and yes, it does take me a while to move them...got a problem with that...

Believe it or not, but I have seen the symbol before and am well aware that it is featured beyond GW.

>.>

As far as a compass rose, (a tool I am familiar with), it appeared to me to be more akin to the Sigil of Chaos than the traditional rose. A traditional compass rose has points lacking the arrow tips/barbs of the Chaos Sigil featured in Chaos occult magic.

That said, with GW being one of the most popular things to feature the Sigil, I guessed that it had an influence on Bungies big-wigs due to the age of the company. I'll look up the emblem later, less someone beats me to it, to see what it is called in-game.

Thought that I would drop you some Reach related numbers:

70 Million+ Games have been played

235 Million+ Player-Games have been played

2 Million+ Files have been uploaded to File Shares

5,901 man-years have been spent in online Reach games (sorry, Corporate America!)

20 Million Daily challenges have been completed

709,840 Weekly challenges have been completed

165 Billion Credits have been earned

Quite impressive, huh?

The full article can be seen here: http://www.bungie.net/News/content.a...news&cid=28805

Yes, we do! It is the result of these two things combined:

Or maybe not... [Blames Bungie for using the word "Man-Years"]
